World Poetry would like to especially thank Heidi Mueller for her patience in designing the beautiful program given out at the Tagore Celebration November 24th. It will be cherished by many of the participants, the internet readers and the public.
Sharon Rowe was also asked to make paper flowers for the Tagore night. Even the consuls from India and Korea were wearing her flowers. From the podium, we could look out and see a sea of coloured flowers in the audience.Each flower had the name Tagore 2008 and "by Sharon." We want to thank the wonderful World Poetry volunteers; Jacqueline Maire, Mandana Rastan and Montana King who greeted each person and gave out a program and a flower.

You are the best!
